So much for the "indisputably improving" health of the nation as every HHS secretary since the Vietnam War has officially claimed. Up until recently the claim was that while the nation was getting quite visibly obese by the day that was not translating into adverse health outcomes. Well, so much for that. Oh, and don't forget how we are "winning" the war on cancer!


CDC Press Releases

"...More than 100 million U.S. adults are now living with diabetes or prediabetes, according to a new report released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The report finds that as of 2015, 30.3 million Americans – 9.4 percent of the U.S. population –have diabetes. Another 84.1 million have prediabetes, a condition that if not treated often leads to type 2 diabetes within five years. The report confirms that the rate of new diabetes diagnoses remains steady. However, the disease continues to represent a growing health problem: Diabetes was the seventh leading cause of death in the U.S. in 2015. The report also includes county-level data for the first time, and shows that some areas of the country bear a heavier diabetes burden than others."

I think we are best served by just taking the opposite of what the Government tells us to do.
What do you think are the best strategies for keeping blood sugar in the normal range. I know that many would say that there is nothing wrong with high blood sugar but assuming its best to keep it below 99 what would you do?

Of course they do because everyone is getting fatter and eats a high fat diet, both PUFA and SFA. All of the flour doesn't help because flour is not the same as boiled/steamed starch and it doesn't mix well with such a high fat diet. Anyone who really believes that American's eat "low fat" needs to come on a tour with me. I'll show you what they eat in real life. It will be like a safari.

High iron intake plays a role for sure(or low manganese intake!)


High pufa/fat intake,

And I'm not sure about this but low biotin intake may also play a role, best source is liver and not all of people consume it regularly..

Keep stress low and avoid anything sold in stores. Both are probably difficult to implement in modern society. As a second best approach, take an anti-serotonin or thyroid.

The official stats are that the average person in the US consumes about 90g fat daily. On a 2,000 calorie diet that is more than 40% fat and on a 2,500 diet it is more than 30% fat. Both are considered high-fat diets by official standards. Not sure who is claiming that Americans eat low fat, but if that is the claim indeed then the person is smoking something illicit or getting paid to say it.
